The majority of your list is mass production stuff, and the only real man's watch I(granted it IS expensive) think is the Rolex Submariner. As a watch fanatic I have had at least one of each of the makes you list over the last forty years, and found them (aprt from the Seiko) to be unreliable timewise or just break down after a few years. Top Men's watches for 2011 should include top hand made Swiss makes; Omega, Longines,Patek-Phillipe,Tag-Huer, for these are as good as the Rolex and come in at half (or less) the price.

i personally have a Longines Conquest that is very accurate and as pretty as any Rolex. The trick is to buy these watches abroad when you go on holiday. I bought mine in Lanzaroti for £400 less that the UK listed price of £999 -and it is waterproofed to 300m, plus the diver rotating bezel is pure gold.

Hi Slideseven, thankyou for your comment.

The watches featured in this list are chosen for a number of factors not only including price.

they are best selling watches from a number of sources and are highly rated by the people that bought them.

Of course you have your prefered watch as I too have but as with every article that I write I try to be neutral and research many different avenues as possible before deciding on my final shortlist.

good luck and happy hubbing.....jimmy

Great breadth of choices. I read recently that wristwatches are falling out of favor, as people check their phones now for the time. And yet - maybe I'm just old - I still reflexively glance at my (empty) wrist when I need to know the time. Old habits die hard! These choices are great for telling the time, providing other great, useful features, and for looking smart on the wrist!

Livelonger, You are right. I have a couple of watches and wear one when I go out (rarely nowadays). But forget it more frequently now. Always look for it due to habit. Talking about Seiko I have had 2, M5s and my first watch also was a Skyliner the slimmest Seiko. They were very reliable time wise. They all worked well even when they were left behind for the new ones.

My husband is a watch collector. I believe that they will move from function into fashion as our reliance on personal electronics increases. I do not see a day when watches are no longer here. Although, I am sure someone said that about the typewriter once...

Well, my hubby will wear it no matter what happens.

Nice list, but the number 1 watch seems a bit out of place! It's a whooping $10,000+ compared to the $100 range of the other watches.
